Ground Cover Question?
I have an area of my yard in the back that is fairly damp and has a lot of roots which make it a pain to mow and get grass going. I am thinking about just planting some sort of ground cover that will be easy to seed and maintain (ideally broadcast seeding), grow well in a partial to full shade damp area, and just generally look better than the half grass/half mud area that it is now.
I was thinking about English Ivy or Vinca. Any thoughts? The area is about 15' by 40' Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
